Horse People Are Styling!!!

So every 5 years or so the high fashion magazines go through a wave of loving equine inspired fashion. You will see glamorous spread of an 80 pound model with knee high boots, leggings and some out of control jacket that if you squint you could see how it was inspired by a hunt coat. When I see these spreads I always smile, but I don’t really give it a lot of thought. If I see a great piece in NYC, I buy it, but I don’t go out of my way to keep an “equestrian inspired look” because, as I am sure you all do, I feel like I have that going for me a couple of hours a day already anyway!

Normally I only see the equine sheik thing in little boutiques or high end stores like Bloomingdale’s. Imagine my surprise when I was in the mall last week and looked in to a store and saw the display above. It was in just a normal store! Can you see the faux full seat breeches? I had to take a picture because I thought it was pretty cool. This is the first time I have ever seen equine inspired fashion in a big chain. Who knows, maybe someday I will be wearing my full show habit to work and be at the height of fashion 😛

  1. A couple of years ago I had a store employee run after me in ShopRight because he thought something was wrong with my pants. I was wearing full seat breeches. Once he caught up to me, he realized my butt was fully covered. Boy, was he embarrassed.
